Description:

This Worcester mug is decorated with a rare shipping print between two prints of classical scenery.  Below the shipping print is a scroll with a hand-painted inscription "SUCCESS TO Ye PEGGY".  This was clearly a special commission but, as The Peggy was a very popular name for a vessel, it is impossible to identify the ship involved without further information.  The print of the two men of war (but without the two ships in the distance) was also used on another mug in conjunction with a print of Admiral Boscawen.
